What if the purpose of school was to guide children to change the world?
Acton Academy Champions helps students ages 5-18 discover and grow their unique strengths — because the world needs them.
Do you believe your child has the potential to change the world?
Do you believe learning to do and learning to be are more important than textbooks alone?
Do you believe in a closely connected family of lifelong learners?
Then perhaps Acton Academy is for you and your family.
We offer a truly different approach to school. Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades. At Acton Academy Champions, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners. Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.
